Q:

How do you get rid of a passion mark?

A:

A person can get rid of a passion mark by using a cold compress. Take the compress, or wrapped ice, and rub it around the hickey. The spot should be rubbed for 20 minutes several times per day to reduce the blood flow.

Hot water also works to reduce passion marks. Take a warm washcloth or a hot water bottle and place it on the spot for 15 to 20 minutes several times per day.

You can also brush the passion mark with a soft bristled toothbrush. Brush the spot for several minutes and then hold a cold compress over it.

    How do you get rid of ingrown hairs?

    A:

    Get rid of ingrown hairs by rubbing a clean cotton swab in the opposite direction of the ingrown hair to gently pull it out of the skin. If that doesn't work, use a pair of tweezers to pull the portion of the hair out that is stuck inside the skin. Make sure not to pull out the hair completely, because it irritates the hair follicle.
